In lieu of a new Technical board structure being implemented soon, here are the workings for the new FAQ posts to replace all technical stickies, and hopefully most of your searches.

This is a temporary post because it isn't helping anyone locked away while I'm too busy to finish it.

Please post additional useful links as a new post for a Mod to add to the list.

Mods, I've tried to categorise things logically and keep double-ups to a minimum. PM me any questions.

Cheers,

kamineko

      Can someone please give some advice here.?
      I have just bought a 2013 legacy.  BR?
      Of course the stereo is all in Japanese and annoys me no end!. I cant seem to find any options that change the language...
      Looking for an upgrade to the stereo.  Problem is, every place seems to think that I DONT have a 2013 legacy.
      My dash looks like this (although mines RHD...)

       
      Although a different stereo.  Mine has the original MacIntosh stereo, its the same layout.  Mine has the larger screen for GPS at the top and the head unit underneath.
      Every place seems to think I should have the stereo at the top with a pocket underneath.
       
      Like this.

       
      Even the user manual doesn't seem to think I have the right layout!!!
       
      So, first question..Why is mine different?
       
      Second question...Does anyone know of where to get a stereo that will fit my layout?  (like the top picture).  I can only find ones that will fit the lower pic layout, and they don't seem interchangeable looking at them.
      I tried ordering one of the Tesla style ones from AliExpress and despite my asking "do you have a right hand drive version?" asked several times they sent a left hand drive one telling me I just need a professional to install it.  It would be awesome in RHD, but cutting the plastic to fit it, is going to leave gaps..

      Hi,
       
      Legacy 2005 BPE
       
      Can you please help me identify this part on the suspension of my Legacy? Is it the Sway bar bush?
       
      Can I replace this myself?

      So, it's my birthday tomorrow, and I want to go drag racing! I'm heading to Meremere Dragway with the family in the Legacy.
       
      I'd like to take it down the track a few times...to have some fun with the family, and get a starting performance base before the fixes and modifications start.
       
      Will I need a helmet? Will I have to prep the car to pass a safety inspection there? Being an automatic, what RPM should I launch with the foot brake, and at what RPM should I be shifting?
       
      Also, is anyone else going? Do you want to meet up?
       
      Thanks!
       
      Greg
